{Thrifty Thursday} Eclectic Tablescape

Hola!  I am in LOVE with my newest tablescape and I just have to blog about it!  I hadn’t set my formal table since my birthday dinner and I literally woke up one day, and tired at looking at a sad, lonely table, I marched myself to Homegoods and browsed the web in search of a collection that would add color, cheerfulness, and an eclectic air to our formal dining and living space.  I looked through what I had and decided that I wanted to use my formal place mats and my pink napkins, which are a carry over from my informal Easter setting.  

Anyway… the details.  I gave myself a budget of $100.  Here’s the run-down:
        Large Dinner plate – HomeGoods, $5.99/each ($24 total)
        Large gold-rimmed salad plate – Pottery Barn, $23.99/4 plus free shipping with code
        Peacock Salad Plate – Macy’s $23.99/4 (Reduced from $50.00 to $29.99 plus my 20%
        Star Reward discount)
        Japanese noodle bowls - HomeGoods, $3.99/each ($16 total)

Total for new dishes: $88.00  I bought a small wine carafe ($7 on clearance) with the remaining budget money, and even had money to spare!

Now the test, do you like it as much as I do?  What do you think of the mis-matching?  My favorite part is that since these dishes are all mismatched, I can reuse them with other china patterns I already have.  I’ll keep you posted on how I reuse these pieces to create different tablescapes as the seasons, and my mood, change.
